Understanding Memorials and Monuments in Carrickfergus

In Carrickfergus, memorials and monuments are help people to remember loved ones. A Memorial is an informal ceremony held in memory of the loved one, remembering any aspect of the individual's life. At a memorial service, people might read out eulogies, recite funeral poems or present mementos. A monument is a headstone or a graveside marker and usually bears an inscription to identify and preserve the memory of the deceased. Headstones are usually made of granite or bronze and come in different shapes.

A Good Memorial Service in Carrickfergus and its Essentials

Present-day memorial services are more personalised, reflecting the individual being memorialised. It's an attempt to highlight and celebrate their unique life. The best gift we can give ourselves and our loved one is a memorial service that truly represents that individual and the feelings we have for them. A good service could be based at their favourite location with the reading out of poems written for them as well as their choice of music playing. The service should be conducted as a respectful and personalised memory of the loved one.

Attributes of a Good Monument in Carrickfergus

There are many types of headstone available, so you can choose one that's just right for your loved one. Bronze headstones often feature a beautifully engraved bronze plaque, while granite headstones normally feature luxurious designs and customised lettering. Gravestones can be designed to accommodate a beautiful bronze vase, but it's advisable to check if the cemetery rules will allow this before you decide upon one. Cremation memorials, which are graveside markers, are used to accommodate a loved one's ashes. Monuments, regardless of their shape, can offer ancestral information that can be valuable to members of a family.

Monuments can be made from different materials including metal, granite, wood or natural stone. Colour, size, text and font style, portrait and/or emblems could be decided upon after visualising how it will look.

In addition to standard memorials, monuments or headstones, there are many artisans who can fashion unique and beautiful creations for you.
